Bacon Cheeseburger Buns Recipe
- 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
- 2/3 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
- 2/3 cup warm milk (110° to 115°)
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup shortening
- 2 Eggland's Best Eggs
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 4-1/2 to 5 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 pound sliced bacon, diced
- 2 pounds ground beef
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1 pound process cheese (Velveeta), cubed
- 3 to 4 tablespoons butter, melted
- Ketchup or barbecue sauce, optional
- In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the milk, sugar, shortening, eggs, salt and 3-1/2 cups flour; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
- Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
- Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Using a slotted spoon, remove to paper towels. In a Dutch oven, cook the beef, onion, salt and pepper over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Add bacon and cheese; cook and stir until cheese is melted. Remove from the heat.
- Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into fourths. Roll each portion into an 12-in. x 8-in. rectangle; cut each into six squares. Place 1/4 cup meat mixture in the center of each square. Bring corners together in the center and pinch to seal.
- Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Bake at 400° for 9-11 minutes or until lightly browned. Brush with butter. Serve warm with ketchup if desired. Yield: 2 dozen.

Made these for Monday Night Football...they were great...everyone liked them!
These sound great!!! For a quick dinner Id use cresent rolls. Would be good for a party too.
These are the BEST! Me and my husband are "newly married." One time I asked him what his mom used to make that he was hungry for. He said, "She used to make some kind of dough with meat and cheese in that were very good." So I called her up and this is the recipe she gave to me! It's been a favorite ever since! I also found out that the dough makes delicious dinner rolls too.
I made these for a group but made them smaller than this recipe suggested. They were a hit. I did not have Velveta, so I used processed American cheese.
To save time, I used crescent rolls - 3 tubes (8 rolls in ea tube). I didn't have Velveeta on-hand but did have Cheez Whiz (15 oz jar). We LOVED these! The kids thought they were fun. Definitely making these again and again. I didn't dice the bacon before I fried it. I fried the slices, and after they cooled I crumbled them (but not too small) - again, saved some time. And I added some ground cumin for a little extra flavor to the ground beef, and didn't brush them w/butter.
